Sounds Like San Diego: September 24

Diana Krall, Blackalicious, Blanco White, Al Di Meola and more top Tuesday's live-music action

It's not often that the Casbah hosts hip-hop, but when it does, it is always exceptional. We expect nothing less from Blackalicious, the Sacto hip-hop duo celebrating 20 years of their debut "Nia." It's gonna be a good one, but not the only show in town by any stretch. At the Belly Up, our pals in Strawberry Moons celebrate a record release; jazz singer and pianist Diana Krall plays Humphreys; and jazz fusion legend Al Di Meola plays the Magnolia. Of course, Pyles has a great lineup at the Merrow, Of Mice & Men play SOMA, and if you're into discovering the next big amazing artist who will totally blow your mind, check out Blanco White at House Of Blues. One note, and you just might get hooked.
